  1. Another one that was hard to watch. It definitely gives you an insight/connection? between what ends up on our plate, and where it came from originally. Unintentionally I think, but it also made me think about the people that actually produce our food, not necessarily what they do to the animals or plants that we eat but how much they endure both mentally and physically, killing animals and knowingly spraying our crops..all because corporations told them to.

  2. This was disturbing, both in the process of our food, and in the way that the people doing it without any emotion. The development of our nations food is taking a path that may have no way back. Our demand far exceeds our limits of producing enough yield without having these types of production. I found that the root of the cause here is the mindset of the masses. And sadly, it is very hard to alter such an extensive force.
